I've been wondering what I was going to use for a
shifter knob for sometime now and then I came across a place that sold
different styles of knobs that range from mild to wild. The knobs that
you see below are from a company called
and they sell all kinds of shifter knobs. I couldn't decide what style
to buy so I bought three different ones to see how they looked and then
I was going to return the other two. Once I received them and screwed
them in place, I'm still not sure which two I want to send back because
they all look good.
I just knew the orange knob wouldn't match once I
tried it but I was wrong. It's very close to the color I have so it
looks really good in there.
The purple one is called Pearl Purple and it has a
slight swirl to it (hard to see in this picture) but it's way cool
looking. It's also very close to the other purple items that have been
anodized so it looks good too.
The one with the flames on it is called Purple
Flame on Ivory. After installing this one, I have to say that it doesn't
match much because of the lighter color of the ivory. On the other hand,
I like the way it looks with the flames on it when it's in the car.
There's just something about flames!!
You have a choice of thread size that you can
choose from and you can also have a light inside if you want. Flameball
uses LED's to light up the inside of the knob to show off the cool
colors they have. I choose not to have any lights in mine though. One
reason was because I would have to run a wire up the shifter and I
didn't think that would look very good.
Now I have to make a decision on which one to
keep, and which ones to send back. The guy at Flameball was nice enough
to let me buy all three knowing that I was going to send two back so
that was nice of them. The problem is, I like them all so I'm not sure
which ones I'm gonna send back. I might just keep them all and change
them when I feel the need. I guess time will tell.
